Are there really other popular artists out there?
Must've been a survey aimed at a really biased group of people.
I mean, I understand what each one means, but they're both essentially the same to me.
Aren't there any ugly ones who'd try to go up against these ones with their singing and musical writing ability?
Then whom is she popular with?
1st - Lipsync
2nd - Gross voice
3rd - Wants to meet him, but can't (but actually got to meet recently)
1st to 10th just sound like shi+ to me.
This is just how teens are.
When they watch music programs, there's nothing but AKB and Johnny's.
And only a handful of them will think that "There must be something better" and go try to search for other ones.
The majority has just lost hope in music itself.
Then it's probably Samuragochi.
10th "Favorite artists as chosen by 20,000 people"
AKB are the national idols in real life.
You can tell that they're really popular once you see the karaoke rankings.
Everyone sings their songs.
I like Ariana.
And who's miwa?
You can listen to music all you want before buying their CDs.
Now, you don't need to buy CDs which don't suit your taste anymore.
And it's much easier to discover newer artists.
